Golbow Elementary recently won the Safe Kids USA/FedEx Facebook photo contest. Their winning photo was one of 72 entries from across the country. From these entries, program sponsors selected 10 finalists that were voted on using Facebook. For their prize, the campus will soon receive a visit from the Safe Kids Ambassador, Grover from Sesame Street, and a $5,000 check for educational materials.
Students and staff members at Golbow celebrated International Walk to School Day on Oct. 5 with a special visit from the H-E-B Buddy who handed Buddy Bucks to student walkers and bike riders. Campus volunteers and staff members also distributed stickers and bracelets to participating students.
“It was incredible to watch the Golbow staff and PTA work together to promote our great school,” says Ann Smith, Golbow Elementary principal. “I would like to thank the entire Katy community for supporting us.”
Golbow Elementary is also a National Green Ribbon School, a title that has been given to only 42 schools in the nation and supported by the Texas Education Agency in partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. In addition to Walk to School days, the campus has incorporated plastic bottle recycling, paper recycling, Waste Free Lunch Day, Recycle Day, Earth Week celebrations and more. They also plan to purchase worm farms this year to assist with the curriculum on decomposition and composting.
